Neighbourhood Plan 2030
SUTTON COURTENAY 2030 - SHAPING OUR FUTURE TOGETHER
NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN - QUESTIONNAIRE FOR RESIDENTS
Please let us know your views.
This is your chance to inform and influence the decision-makers in local government about what you want for your village’s future. If you have any questions about completing this questionnaire or need any help with it please get in touch with the Clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org
What we ask you to do
All residents aged 16 and over are invited to complete a survey. Please complete this survey as an individual. The more responses we get, the better our Neighbourhood Plan will be to deliver the sort of future we want as a community.
If you choose to complete the questionnaire online, please do not also complete the paper copy which is being delivered to households.
AIMS OF THE PLAN
Sutton Courtenay was identified as a larger village in the Vale of White Horse District Council Local Plan and as such was allocated 220 new houses. That allocation has already been met but applications for further development are likely to be received in the future. Completing this questionnaire is an opportunity for you to shape and guide future development in Sutton Courtenay. All responses will be taken into account when producing Sutton Courtenay’s Neighbourhood Plan (SCNP). The SCNP steering group, in consultation with you, is working on creating such a plan for our village.
Once approved and in place the SCNP will:
- aim to guide the growth and development of Sutton Courtenay to 2030 and beyond;
- establish policies by which future planning applications will be guided;
- have legal weight in setting out what development is acceptable to us in Sutton Courtenay. The SCNP, in conjunction with the Vale of White Horse District Council Local Plan, will be used in determining planning applications in Sutton Courtenay;
- entitle the parish council to receive 25% (rather than only 15%) of the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) revenues from any new development taking place in Sutton Courtenay. The SCNP must, therefore, envisage how the neighbourhood element of CIL should be allocated e.g. the provision, improvement, replacement, operation or maintenance of infrastructure or dealing with other demands a new development may place on the community.
